The body of a 25-year-old man, who appeared to have been tortured, was found in south Kashmir's Pulwama district today, police said. 

The body of Mohammad Shafi Sofi, resident of Somboora, was found on the Ratnipora road this morning, a police spokesman said. 

Sofi was working as salesman at an electronics shop here, the official said. The body was taken to the sub-district hospital at Pampore for autopsy and initial reports suggested that Sofi was tortured, he added. 

There were multiple deep cut wounds on his legs and other body parts, the spokesman said adding there was a rope around his neck which indicates the possibility of strangulation besides torture. 

No bullet injury was found on body, he said. A case has been registered and investigation taken up, the spokesman said.
